Bangin' Baked Meatballs

Today is my day off, and while I most definitely have things to do with my spare time, I would much rather be in my cozy bed, blogging to my hearts content. As I was going through my food pictures, I found pics from a meal I never blogged! It was so good too, ad very quick!

So, without further ado, here it is!

Baked Meatballs and Mozzarella

What you'll need:
1 lb Ground Beef
1 Egg
Bread Crumbs (about 1/4 cup)
1 Jar Marinara
Shredded Mixed Italian Cheese
Italian Seasoning
1 Can Olives
Olive Oil

In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, egg, seasoning, and breadcrumbs.

 Using your clean hands, mix together well.

Roll into 2 in (roughly) balls. Heat up a large frying pan, and coat in a thin layer of olive oil.

When pan is hot, place meat balls in pan, and sear well on all sides.

Make sure meatballs are mostly cooked through (dark brown on the outside, and a solid ball).

In a casserole dish, place meatballs and cover with marinara and sliced olives.

Cover entire dish with cheese mix, and place in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes. 

And there you have it!

Serve alone, or with pasta of your choice. These are AMAZING... I think I need to eat lunch :)
